Everything looks good. But instead of gtx 760 sli, I personally would just get a gtx 780. There are some problems with multi gpus.

the 1000w power supply was over kill pick up a good 850w unit. the best ssd right now is samsung evo drives. they have the best reliability and firmware right now. if your looking for a green case I would use the case i picked out use the nxzt green led strip and or some good green led fans. there no gpu in my build as in a few weeks nvidia droping there newer maxwell gpu. in feb the first gpu will be the 750 ti and there going up the chain this time not down. I would wait on the gpu see how much faster the newer nvidias are over there older cards and pick up one high end maxwell gpu for now.

A couple of improvements, go with a samsung evo SSD or crucial m500, they are similar in price to that mushkin but better. Next, as an above member said, don't do 760 SLI for a couple reasons. 1) you should get the 4gb version of the cards if you plan to SLI. 2) after buying 2 4gb 760s, you're looking at 290x prices or higher so a 290x or 780ti would be a better solution.

Here is what I would change.
1) the cpu cooler to one from Noctua. They cool about as well or better than some closed loop water coolers. A Noctua NH-U14S would serve you well http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=82802&vpn=NH-U14S&manu..., or pick another Noctua cooler from here http://us.ncix.com/products/?manufactureid=3624&minorca...

2) Change the SSD to one from Samsung or a Crucial M500

3) update your graphics card to one 770 or 780 , no SLI latency issue that way. And since you wanna spend about $550 on graphics, that would be a better solution.

4) maybe surf the web and find a case you like, maybe something from Bit fenix, Corsair, Coolermaster or NZXT? Just find something you like. I like cases with lots of fan mounts for improved cooling. Running a Cooler Master Storm Scout 2 at the moment.

5) Change the PSU to an 850W psu from Seasonic (the X series or the Platinum series) or Corsair (RM, AX,AXi or HX). They both make real high quality and solid psus. I run a Seasonic X-series 850W in my machine and it has been solid, and the modular cables make wiring components and cable management real easy. You just use the power cables that you need. Seasonic psus come in a velvet cloth case too, a nice touch.

As you are a first time builder watch some build videos on how to build. Here is one from newegg. Part 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPIXAtNGGCw
Part 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?annotation_id=annotation_9... and part 3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?annotation_id=annotation_8...

And be careful overclocking, run stuff at stock clocks at first for a month or so just to make sure it works and monitor the temperatures with Gpu-z and hardware monitor if you do overclock. Also note overclocking voids your warranty, if that matter to you.
